THE GHOST DARREN KANG TIEN HUA OUT TO TRAP HIS MURDER AT THE PLACE WHERE HE WAS MUDERED
NAZRI’S SON WHACKS A SECURITY GUARD…
The son of de facto law minister Nazri Abdul Aziz was alleged to have assaulted a security supervisor at a plush condominium at Mont Kiara on Tuesday night.
Contacted today, Brickfields district police chief Wan Abdul Bari Wan Abdul Khalid confirmed the that two police reports related to the incident had been lodged.
“The case has been classified under section 160 of the Penal Code committing affray,” he said, declining to divulge details of the case.
A condominium management spokesperson confirmed that there had been a minor altercation between the security and the visitor, adding that further comments should be directed to the police.
A source, familiar with the incident, told Malaysiakini that the alleged assault was captured on CCTV cameras.
Cover up pressure on
The individual added that the condominium management was now under pressure to cover up the incident because security firms depend on the federal government to renew their licence.
The minister’s son is said to be Mohamad Nedim Mohd Nazri Aziz (right), who drove a Porsche sports car to the condominium. Followed by a luxury MPV, driven by his bodyguard.
The bodyguard had alighted from the luxury MPV to have his particulars recorded on behalf of both vehicles, but the condominium guards insisted that both drivers do so separately.
An argument ensued, resulting in the supervisor being called in to mediate the situation.
“The bodyguard claimed that the person in the Porsche was a ‘Tengku (royalty)’, but the supervisor explained that they had to register each driver because of the regulations set by the management,” said the source.
This apparently angered Nedim who alighted from his vehicle and allegedly choked the supervisor’s neck before landing a punch on his head.
“The supervisor could not fight back as he was being held by
Nazri’s calling card
The supervisor, in his 50s, suffered bruises. He lodged a police report at the Jalan Travers police station the same night after undergoing checks at a hospital.
Meanwhile, the source said Nedim’s bodyguard had lodged a police report on his boss’s behalf at the same police station.
He claimed to have handed over Nazri’s (below) calling card from the Prime Minister’s Department.The bodyguard, said to have identified himself as Nedim’s employee to the police, admitted engaging in an altercation with the supervisor, because of the latter’s rude behaviour.He had allegedly told the police that the supervisor punched him first and later challenged him to a fight.
He also told the police that during the fracas, he floored the supervisor with a kick to the guts, adding that the supervisor then sucker punched him in the face.
The 22-year-old son of a minister is among several customers the police want to interview in connection with the death of Darren Kang Tien Hua, who died after being assaulted by at least 15 people in Desa Sri Hartamas on Monday.
City police chief Deputy Comm Mustafa Abdullah said the minister’s son was at the scene of the crime and would be called to assist in investigations.
“We have received different accounts of the incident from witnesses and we will call everyone in for questioning, including the minister’s son, to tell us what they saw,” DCP Mustafa said here yesterday.
The minister said: “ I don’t know anything about it, you have to ask the police about this. They are the ones handling it.”
His son was having supper with seven others when Darren, 23, was allegedly assaulted by restaurant workers armed with steel chairs, sticks and iron rods.
The witness came forward the night of the killing but later stop talking after they realize who the murder was related to
Son of minister and his gang attack on law student
Zulkifli had been quoted as saying, “I refused to be involved in a malice to ensure that Nazri’s son was somehow connected to the murder …
you learn something new everyday. Got an interesting tip few days ago claiming that the son of minister Nazri was involved in the murder of Sheffield University law student Darren Kang Tien Hua. It was not looked into, then a second tip came in with the same accusation a few days later with the added claim that witness came forward the night of the killing but later stop talking after they realize who the murder was related to. So I searched news articles from Malaysia in 2004 and what you know, the son of a Malaysian minster was on the murder scene of Darren Kang. The Star article did not mention the minster by name but the article does seem to backup the tipsters.
Apparently Nazri’s son was the main culprit behind the savage killing of Darren, he was the ring leader of the gang of thugs that murdered the law student. Needless to say but there was a big cover up and they pinned the crime on a few Thai immigrant workers. The only interesting thing was reported in the article in The Star was that a son of a minister saw the murder of Darren Kang and was question by the police. A tipster said the group of men that teased Darren about how he was courting his girlfriend was lead by the son of the minister. According to the The Star article, the minister’s “son was having supper with seven others when Darren, 23, was allegedly assaulted by restaurant workers armed with steel chairs, sticks and iron rods.” A tipster said the restaurant workers were the ones that try to stop the attack. And it was the ministers son and several of his friends were the attackers. Darren Kang was murdered after he confronted one of the man asking him why the group had behaved as they did:
PKR today demanded the Home Ministry reopen the assault case involving Datuk Seri Mohamad Nazri Aziz’s son, saying it was an offence to “amicably resolve” a criminal matter.
Party vice-president N. Surendran accused Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein of showing “blatant disregard” for the country’s legal system for declaring the matter closed via such a settlement.
“It is unprecedented for the home minister to personally approve of such ‘amicable settlements’, which are against public policy and the rule of law.
“If a crime is committed, the perpetrator must be brought to court and duly charged. Under our legal system, crimes cannot be ‘amicably settled’,” Surendran (picture)said in a statement.
He added that such a settlement could amount to an offence under section 214 of the Penal Code and by approving the settlement, Hishammuddin may have abetted the allegedly illegal act.
“Was the investigation compromised simply because the case involves the son of a senior Umno minister?
“Further, what are the terms of this illegal settlement and did the settlement involve the police, Nazri Aziz or Hishammuddin?” Surendran asked.
The Home Ministry had confirmed on Wednesday that Nazri’s son Mohamad Nedim has been cleared of any wrongdoing in the assault of a condominium security guard earlier this year, saying that the case was “settled amicably” by both sides.
In a written reply to Loh Gwo-Burne (PKR-Kelana Jaya), the ministry said it was Mohamad Nedim’s former bodyguard who had assaulted the security guard in the March 20 incident and the matter has been investigated by the police.
“For the information of YB and this Dewan Rakyat, the assault of a security guard in March 2012 was actually the fault of Mohamad Nedim Nazri Aziz’s former bodyguard, and this case has been investigated under section 160 of the Penal Code.
“This case has been settled amicably by both parties,” the ministry had said.
Surendran, however, argued that the ministry’s reply was insufficient as it did not explain the outcome of the probe on Mohamad Nedim.
He pointed out that every citizen, regardless of social status, is equal before the law, saying that the assaulted security guard in this case has a right to impartial justice.
“We call upon the home minister to make a full and frank disclosure of the real facts of the case and to reopen the investigation into this assault case,” he said.
Earlier this year, opposition lawmakers had raised a hue and cry over the case involving Mohamad Nedim, accusing the authorities of covering up because of the man’s status as the son of a senior Cabinet minister.
At a press conference on April 9, Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar was forced to urge the public to “trust” the police’s decision in the matter, pointing out that surveillance videos of the alleged scuffle at a plush Mont Kiara condominium had shown that Mohamad Nedim was innocent of wrongdoing.
